Just wanted to show off the cards we made at our stamp club this month. Our hostess this month is not a big fan of Halloween so I wanted to showcase how you can turn a stamp set that you usually use for one thing into something else. Like Halloween stamps. This month we used Halloween Hoot (# 111582- $23.95 Wood Mount Only) for the Free Kisses card and Wicked Cool (# 118738 $19.95- Wood Mount) (#120600 $14.95 Clear Mount) for the cauldron card.
Other elements used for the cards. Black ink is Stazon. I love to use it because the ink doesn't smear when coloring. Plus it dries fast. It's also permanent on non-porous surfaces so it's great to use to put your name on your cake pans and such so they come home to you.
*The 'Free Kisses' card uses the sponging technique. Sponging is a great way to add texture without a lot of tools. It's a great technique for beginners but also great for seasoned stampers. The moon is colored with the brush tip of our wonderful double-tipped markers. Then Crystal Effects was added to add dimension and shine.
*The 'Cauldron' card has a couple of different punches used. The orange edging is done with the scallop trim border (#118402 $15.95). The paper ribbon is made with the new Dotted scallop ribbon border (#119275 $15.95) in More Mustard.
